I have 2 same notebooks running on Ubuntu 18.04.

Applications Menu by fmuellner is installed on both, but it doesn't show any menu item on one of them.

There are 2 differences between them:

  1. the working one runs on higher kernel the other one uses the default kernel
  2. the working one uses English language the other uses another one

Any idea how can I find out what the problem is?

There is no error message or any useful information in

journalctl /usr/bin/gnome-shell

    Both installed locally (or system-wide)? – pomsky Oct 15 '18 at 10:24

    good point! Does it affect the working any how? On the working one it is installed system-wide and on the other one it is locally installed. On my debian system the locally installed version works. – Zoltán Süle Oct 15 '18 at 10:26

    It shouldn't, but looks like it does! Also same version? – pomsky Oct 15 '18 at 10:33
  • same version on the Ubuntu systems – Zoltán Süle Oct 15 '18 at 11:22
  1. Alt + F2
  2. Type lg
  3. Click 'Extensions'
  4. 'Show errors' below Application Menu
  5. If error is this._button.hotCorner is undefined just enable it (Gnome Tweak Tool: Top Bar → Activities Overview Hot Corner) Or edit the extension.js :) github gnome-shell-extensions
